Description

Setup both DHCP and DHCPv6 servers, using dsnmasq, client's IPv4 addresses are showing up in DNS, but IPv6 addresses are not.

I compared /var/dhcp/etc/dhcpd.conf and dhcpv6.conf and dns settings seem to match. DHCPv6 addresses are not listed in /etc/hosts.

I don't see how this can be made, ipv6 clients do not send a hostname. Neither do I see a possibility to match the DUID up with the mac.

Ok, but how about doing it for hosts with reservations? The hostname is available in the reservation. (Yes, I know if there's a reservation I could just set up a static DNS entry, but the IPv4 DHCP server does this automatically and it would be good to mirror the functionality, it's also good for sysadmins to only have to set data in one place.)

If this can't be done at all, then the UI to enable it (and configure the registration domain) should be removed. Also, if it can only be done for hosts with reservations, then it would be helpful to note that in the UI.
